Seasons of Durango Ratings and Reviews
One of our favorite restaurants while we lived in Durango and a must when we visit. Excellent roasted chicken and inventive sides. My crispy seabass feature was incredibly good. Very good wine list with something for every budget. Our Sharecropper's pinot noir was perfect.
I was looking forward to dinner at Seasons as it was my birthday. I had not been there for dinner for quite some time. Lunches are always good. Overall the dinner selections were not that great, they were more limited than they used to be so obviously the menu changed a bit. Staff was friendly but could have been a bit more attentive. I had to ask to get my table cleared and he said he was waiting for us to finish. All in all I was just disappointed and probably will not return.
As always, great food & fun menu! Service was good considering a large tour bus came in right at 7pm on Saturday night. I was not charged for a bottle of wine ($110) and had to send the bill back. They comped us a free mini dessert, but have never had that happen with a nice bottle of wine?
We were celebrating my friends 50th birthday. My husband and I have dined here often. This was the first time we disliked our meal. Our waitress was friendly, yet seemed very hurried and rushed. We shared an appetizer, which was served cold. None of us knew if it was supposed to be cold? It had duck in it , so I’m pretty sure it should have been warmer. I had the fettuccini with harvest vegetables. The fettuccine had a strange texture and the seasoning could have been better. The birthday girl had Caesar salad with shrimp. She couldn’t believe the shrimp was not grilled. The three of us shared two desserts; Chocolate cake and cream bule. Which both tasted amazing, yet the portion was very small.
What is happening Seasons Durango!!?! You have been our favorite restaurant for 5 years. After our meal the other night, I’m not so sure :-(
We had a delightful dinner. They have a wonderful vegetarian menu in addition to their regular menu. Innovative use of products.
The only drawbacks was the strawberry with cheese- the strawberry sauce was entirely to sour and the apple lime ice cream - way, way to tart- we couldn't eat. The food could be served a little hotter too.
The rest of the meals were delicious - you have to give the chef credit because it really is an innovative menu
We were staying in the Durango area and gave this restaurant a try. Unlike Eolus, this restaurant didn't inspire with food or service. The food was OK. Just not outstanding. My wife did enjoy the barramundi special. I searched the menu for a long time and decided on the lamb. It was cooked OK. Just not that tasty. The service was also just OK. Pacing of the mains was very slow. All in all, we were not impressed with the restaurant and would not recommend.
We returned almost exactly a year after our first visit. On that first trip we were very impressed- we're from a 'foodie' town, portland, and this restaurant was up there with portlands best. This year not so much. Ok food, so so service. It was fine, but nothing to get excited about.
We have been dining at Seasons for many years on our repeat trips to Durango over the past 20 years. Seasons has always been one of our first dining spots even prior to the historic building burning down and the owner generously continuing the employment of her staff during the rebuilding process. Immediately, upon entering the restaurant, the usual ambiance was absent. We could not put our finger on it and even wondered if the restaurant had changed hands. The bar waiter was knowledgeable and friendly as was the staff that seated us. We found the menu had been very much abbreviated and I asked our waitress if there were any additional specials. She abruptly informed me they were written on the menu instead of graciously telling me what they were. I asked her to show me where on the menu and she simply pointed. The wait staff have always been superb at Seasons so this was an unusual occurrence for us. I ordered the Cod special, the fish portion of which was very nice. The set up seemed as if it had been sitting for some time prior to being served. My husband enjoyed his meal, a steak, from the regular choices. I would recommend Seasons with the caveat that it is not as it used to be which is a shame. I'm not sure we will dine there next visit as a number of new restaurants appear worth investigating.
Superb experience! We're serious foodies from the Bay Area and were impressive with the quality of our dinner and the exceptional service from staff--from the bartender to everyone who waited on us. I can't remember a restaurant that has as well trained staff which made our evening more enjoyable. Hats off to the kitchen team that executed every plate with sophistication. Would be back tonight if were in the area. Put Seasons at the top of your list.
Sometimes on a travel day a full meal seems like too much. For a lighter but fully satisfying dinner consider sharing the starter selection of Hoisin Bbq pork ribs followed by of the salads, such as the Maytag blue dressing wedge, with the added steak done medium rare. Excellent!
Really good food (I just reserve 5 stars for the ultimate, ultimate, fine dining). What I think they do very well is hit a happy medium between adult ambiance and kid-friendly. there were lots of folks there on 'date-night' but also families with kids, and the staff and other patrons seemed just fine with that. We had burgers, steak and Cobb salad among us all and they were all 4 or 4+. Rather pricey. Our fabulous waitress - who took our grandson's nut allergy very seriously, as did the kitchen - accidentally wrote down chicken when I ordered the sea bass - but when she brought the chicken and realized her mistake they made it right in a hurry and took it off the bill. Would definitely recommend this place and will probably go again.
After multiple disappointing meals up in Telluride, we came down to Durango for our flight home the next day. We'd booked Seasons based on the Open Table reviews and were not disappointed. From beginning to end our service was fantastic. Rae took such good care of us.
The wine list is extensive and well thought out. A very nice feature is Seasons use of a Coravin device which allows glasses to be poured from wines shown only as bottles on the list. Maybe not every wine will be allowed to be poured from, but many more than just the wines shown as "by the glass". The cocktails were made with skill, care, and knowledge and were delicious.
The food was fantastic from beginning to end as well. The Burratta and Smoked Trout Dip appetizers were well conceived, well executed, and absolutely delicious. Our main courses of Lamb Loin, Cheese & Salumi Platter, Wedge Salad, and Steak Frites were all excellent as well. Only minor knock is that Frites could have been crispier, but they tasted fantastic anyway.
The desserts were also done at a very high level. The Strawberry Shortcake (actually pound cake) was one of the best versions of this typical summer dish we've ever had. The Chocolate Decadence Cake was equally fantastic!
We will definitely come back and can easily recommend Seasons of Durango for anyone wanting a great meal in Durango.
